Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapists perform assessments with infants, children, and adolescents to evaluate cognition, physical strength, motor development and coordination, sensory integration, and social-emotional development that enables the individual to engage in play and learning, and steadily assume increased independence with self-care and daily living skills. Assessments may be specific or comprehensive as the therapist observes the child accomplishing performance-based activities and gathers information via parent questionnaires. Many times when assessments are scored the youth’s performance is compared to age-level norms, however, other tools may provide a rating that indicates tasks/activities which are challenging or identifies performance barriers. A treatment plan is then established that prioritizes goals, identifies therapeutic activities that can be presented in a sequential manner to enable the child to achieve their potential, and outlines strategies and supports that can promote their continued development and enhanced independence.​
